The Thermal Vehicle Domain deep dives into components that enable thermal and air cabin comfort as well as the management of heat dissipation in other critical component areas (for example cooled EGR). 

Thermal management is critical in maintaining cabin comfort as well as propulsion temperature control in all conditions. Environmental concerns, emissions compliance, and greater penetration of hybrid and electric vehicles are driving increased value-added opportunities in this sector as well as difficult material and architecture-selection decisions.

The S&P Global Mobility Thermal Vehicle Domain provides insight, context, data, and analytics for key technologies that are reshaping the thermal sector. Users can quickly access key insights from market developments, put context around events and technological trends, dive into deep data and forecasts, and seamlessly drive analytics to support their most challenging decisions.

Topics covered:

  • Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems technology and its management
  • Thermal management systems applied to powertrain components (e.g., cooled exhaust gas recirculation, EV propulsion)

Planners and strategists use the Vehicle Domain to:

  • Assess and forecast new thermal technology growth
  • Analyze the competition
  • Understand OEM purchasing strategies
  • Evaluate OEM thermal technology adoption paths
